This is a great curry. I really do love Paneer, and I’ve tried a few variations on a Paneer and Spinach Curry. This one is really great, the tomatoes and clotted cream make it really thick and unctuous. This recipe is perfect for two servings, if you want to make it for four, just double the quantities – although only use 300ml of boiled water (you don’t want it drowning!).

This recipe for Paneer, Tomato and Spinach Curry isn’t particularly spicy, so it won’t blow your head off – if your child is a curry fiend I think this should be okay for them.

Anyway, enjoy!

Paneer, Tomato and Spinach Curry Method

1 – Fry the Paneer pieces in a some oil on a medium heat in a non stick pan. Let them brown on each side. Use tongs to flip them over.

5 – Add the Chopped Tomatoes, Tomato Puree, Sugar and 200ml Boiled Water.

6 – Let your Curry sauce simmer for 5 mins or so until it’s thickened.

7 – Add the Baby Leaf Spinach and Clotted Cream and cook until all the Spinach has wilted for another 5 minutes or so.

8 – Season with Salt and Pepper and add the Paneer pieces into the Curry.

9 – Cook for a few more minutes, and then serve – it’s great with Rice, or Roti (or both!)
